On account of the peculiar climate of San Francisco, rendering spring and summer the preferable season for prosecuting medical studies, the sessions are held from March to November. During this period cool winds blow across the city daily, moderating the temperature and particularly favoring the study of practical anatomy and necroscopy.

The degree of Doctor of Medicine is conferred upon students who complete this course satisfactorily, and comply with the conditions enumerated below.


The course of studies comprises clinical, didactic, and laboratory instruction. Although it is intended that the three methods shall constitute a systematic whole, special prominence is given to the first.

In clinical teaching the plan pursued has for its aim the actual confronting of the student with the phenomena of disease, that the senses of sight, hearing and touch may be trained to aid him in forming a correct diagnosis.

Full access is given to the City and County Hospital, a complete modern structure containing five hundred beds, and presenting for observation nearly every known form of disease, including those peculiar to the tropics and South America. The staff of the Hospital is largely drawn from the Faculty of the College, giving them unusual advantages for developing clinical material. The Professor of Clinical Surgery has charge of three surgical wards (thirty-two beds in each); the Professor of Clinical Medicine, of two wards; the Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and the Professor of Ophthalmology, of one ward each. Autopsies are conducted in the Mortuary three times a week, by the Pathologist. A large operating theater has been erected, where the major and minor operations of surgery are performed in view of the class. Operat. ing days are Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Hospital is situated at the junction of Twenty-second Street with Potrero Avenue, and is accessible from 1e North Beach and Mission cars, the Omnibus line, and the Mission Street line.

Hospital Clinics.

The Hospital Clinics include:

Clinical surgery, by Professor McLean.
Clinical medicine and pathology, by Professor Kerr.
